Cystoscopy is procedure of inserting a cystoscope into urethra – the tube that carries urine from bladder to outside the body. Cystoscope uses optical fibers and consists of lenses like telescope or microscope. Cystoscopy reveals tumors, stones or cancer.
In Cystoscopy usually a local anesthetic gel or spray to numb the urethra is used to perform flexible cystoscopy to reduce any discomfort when the cystoscope is inserted into the urethra. A general anesthetic (where you’re asleep), or a spinal anesthetic (epidural) that numbs all feeling below your spine usually is used in rigid cystoscopy. Risks include urinary tract infection, long term bleeding and problems in passing urine in some people.
A cystoscopy can be used to investigate symptoms that involve the urethra or the bladder. You may need to have a cystoscopy to determine the cause of concerns such as:
- Blood in the urine
- Painful urination
- Urinary retention (inability to urinate)
- Recurrent bladder infections
- Frequent urination
- Pelvic pain
